Tomorrow, EASTER, is the most celebrated day of remembrance in the Christian's life.  We sing "Up from the grave He arose!" , "Christ the Lord is risen today. HALLELUHIA" among many other hymns.
All day I have been thinking of the word "resurrect "

To bring (a dead person) back to life

To cause (something that had ended or been forgotten or lost) to exist again, to be used again etc.

When sin entered the world with Adam and Eve something was broken. Dysfunction entered the scene and everyone who has ever lived has been subject to it and even as a new born baby carries the sin nature.

When we get saved, born again, (accept JESUS into our hearts) we recognize that through the shedding of JESUS blood (death) we have been made clean and no longer must be burdened with the sin nature. "Old things have passed away..behold all things have become new" 2 Corinthians 5:17

Have you ever wondered what needs to be resurrected in your life?  I think the Lord had a Perfect Plan for each and everyone of us before The Fall and because of that "fall" we were robbed of the very giftings, personalities,  uniqueness that Christ has planted and knit into our very fiber.

Friends.  It's time for RESURRECTION SUNDAY!   Now that you are "clean" I pray you will begin to call into existence all that the Lord has had for you from Day 1.  Go before Him in prayer and see what He has to say.  Don't be afraid..the Maker knows it all and wants most of all for you to be walking in the Fulness of your Calling!

Patience in the Pain

Yesterday, chatting with Kendall, I was telling her that the Lord had planted a thought in my heart. That we need to have

Patience in our Pain.

We chewed on that for a while, as we can often see that as contrary to what the Scripture wants

We believe that the Lord's Will is to heal
We believe we have an enemy

But my thinking was

we MUST walk in the Patience and Perseverance that HE KNOWS "the way that I take..." That He watches me carefully, nothing escaping His Attention.   That His Timing in the Process is impeccable.

So Friend, if you are experiencing pain today, physically, mentally or emotionally....take the Truth personally,

And as James 1 says ~ you WILL become "mature and complete in Christ Jesus" when perseverance has completed its work in you

Chosen for Affliction
      Alistair Begg
I have tried you in the furnace of affliction.  
Isaiah 48:10

Comfort yourself, tried believer, with this thought: God says, "I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction" [KJV]. Does not the Word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yea, is it not a protective shield, against which the heat has no power? Let affliction come--God has chosen me. Poverty, you may stride in at my door, but God is in the house already, and He has chosen me. Sickness, you may intrude, but I have balsam ready--God has chosen me. Whatever befalls me in this vale of tears, I know that He has "chosen" me.

If, believer, you require still greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of Man with you in the furnace. In that silent chamber of yours, there sits by your side One whom you have not seen, but whom you love; and often when you do not know it, He comforts you in your affliction and softens the place of rest. You are in poverty; but in your lovely house the Lord of life and glory is a frequent visitor. He loves to come into these desolate places, that He may visit you. Your friend sticks closely to you. You cannot see Him, but you may feel the pressure of His hands. Do you not hear His voice? Even in the valley of the shadow of death He says, "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God."1

Remember that noble speech of Caesar: "Fear not, you carry Caesar and all his fortune." Fear not, Christian; Jesus is with you. In all your difficult trials, His presence is both your comfort and safety. He will never leave one whom He has chosen for His own. "Fear not, for I am with you" is His sure word of promise to His chosen ones in the "furnace of affliction." Will you not, then, take hold of Christ and say:

Through floods and flames, if Jesus lead,
I'll follow where He goes.

1) Isaiah 41:10
